. a lot of times cbo's estimates change because actual economic facts change. the economy's getting better, employment is going up, they'll revise their numbers accordingly. that's fair. the only thing i want to say is of course predictions become correct. we have to agree on who's in charge of predicting before we make a decision. >> of course, predictions are not always right, but the key fact of the cbo report is that it scored this immigration bill extraordinarily high and it will be extremely helpful to the american economy. >> right. >> this will be valuable for all of us. so do you think that this cbo report will change or help the impact -- will change the immigration debate or will people who are against it still say, well, i don't believe it. i don't care about what that says? >> well, i think it does change things for the better if you're in favor of immigration reform, which i am. we proponents of immigration reform are always sort of saying in a generic way, this is good for the economy. you bring in talented people. you bring in ambitious people, people who want to work, stay

the fed has been doing and what is also unknown is whether the economy is going to get strong enough so the real economy, real growth, and profits at companies are going to be strong enough to sort of displace the fed stimulus as it pulls away. the fed has made an important point. if things go south and things turn out to be a lot worse than we think, we don't have do change anything. we can ease up -- >> print more money. >> we can do whatever we want. but that's not the way markets have interpreted this. traders have just ignored all the ifs and buts that bernanke said. they've assumed the fed is going to start taking away the medicine. that remains to be seen. >> well, rick, that's the question, right? you talk about this being moved a lot by day traders or etfs. >> and hedge funds. >> is this a judgment that we are running out of value in the underlying markets and the stocks, or is it just a prediction about the future? >> well, it's mostly psychology. i'll tell you that. it is people trying to guess where -- how dependent the stock market is on the fed. it is not anything that's a

in the economy. jetblue and southwest airlines are the top ranked by passengers in the latest performance survey. still, the airline industry as a whole ranks near the bottom of the service sector beating only fees for television and internet companies. needless to say this guy doesn't work for either of these airlines. more than a million people have viewed this of a guy chucking packages onto a conveyor belt. as you can see, he doesn't have very good aim. and now crime time. >> hey. >> the 38-year search for jimmy hoffa's body is one of america's great mysteries and this field in a michigan suburb might finally solve it. or maybe not. acting on a reliable tip from the son of a detroit mob boss and self proclaimed friend of hoffa, authorities are once again digging for the infamous remains. so far no body has been uncovered but there's evidence of cement. that would be significant because the source says hoffa was buried alive and covered over with cement. and best friend turned snitch. the friend of whitey bulger and former hitman john known as the executioner testified in the high-profile tri
